The world's best small car
Added: 30th of May 2021
The Honda Jazz is remarkable. At one point the Jazz was #1 on JD Power's satisfaction chart, and the Jazz hybrid #2. Only Bentley owners are more likely to replace their car with another the same. Our 10-plate is the second of 3 Honda Jazz we've owned, the first (a 54 plate) eventually wore out, we still have this and a newer 64 plate. The Jazz redefined practicality in its class. We have taken a family of 4 (two adults, two young adults, one of them already 5'10") for a week away in one of these, complete with bikes on the back. It's solid, quiet (up to about 70), comfortable, has exceptionally light and usable controls, and returns consistently impressive economy. Honestly, I do not know anyone who has ever been disappointed or let down by a Jazz. They are just... competent. Excellent design, typical Honda engineering, perhaps a little dull, but worth in every respect.
